Throughout DS5, technology contributes to enhanced safety and security. It also transforms driver comfort and control for serene progress. The Emergency and Assistance System is there for you 24 hours a day, providing automatic emergency calling in the event of an accident. The sophisticated specification includes an optional colour head-up display and reversing camera, while a blind spot monitoring system that’s standard on some models is an important safety innovation.
The Touchscreen re-imagined
At the heart of DS5’s beautifully realised dashboard is the huge colour Touchscreen. This brings you instant fingertip access to all the important functions, from Satellite Navigation to your choice of music. Being well connected is a simple pleasure.
When we design a car, safety is engineered into it from the wheels up. Whether it’s the advanced materials we use to build the car’s structure or the technology we employ to assist the driver, we constantly strive to create the safest vehicles we can.
We want you to avoid an accident if at all possible so DS5 features active safety equipment such as Electronic Stability Programme, Blind Spot Monitoring and ABS anti-lock brakes. As drivers frequently don’t press the pedal hard enough during an emergency stop, DS5 also has Emergency Braking Assistance. This guarantees you get the most out of your brakes, should you need them. But accidents can’t always be avoided so we’ve got passive safety covered too. DS5 has five three-point seat belts with pre-tensioners and force limiters and a comprehensive airbag system.
• Front airbags with passenger airbag deactivated by key
• Side ‘Thorax’ type airbags for the driver and front passenger
